We live in Minneapolis, just off the 4 bus, near downtown. We became car-free when a now-convicted young man jumped into a illegally running car and plowed it into our S80 Volvo.

The Dream Car

Luckily, Big Strong Dancer Papa was solo in the car, because the front end and the driver’s seat were the only parts not crushed. Not so lucky for him, chiropractor care continues. After a few weeks of Insurance Theater, we got a check that wouldn’t allow us to replace the car we had, which was our dream car. That’s how we became car-free. Thanks for sharing in our adventures. 

Due to serious health issues, we are no longer car free. We are still a one car family.

  1. FUEL is an insightful documentary concerning one man’s struggle with America’s dependence on oil and our nation’s alternatives.

    The FUEL team is excited to be presenting the GREAT GREEN BLOG CHALLENGE. In order to spread the word about the best green blogs and about environmentalism in general we will be asking for nominations for the hippest and most informative eco friendly blogs, which we will then feature on our website. On July 30 we will ask our friends and followers to vote on their favorites and the winners and runner-ups will receive tickets to the nation-wide premiere of FUEL in September.

    We would like to invite you to participate in the contest by asking your readers to email FUELthefilm@gmail.com and telling us that you are a GREAT GREEN BLOG.

    Complete details about the contest can be found at http://thefuelfilm.com/great-green-blog-challenge.

  3. Hi,

    I wondered if you would be interested in exchanging links with The Green Providers Directory

    We are a not-for-profit, green directory founded on ethical principles, providing links to renewable energy suppliers, organic health and beauty products, fair trade clothing, gifts and household goods and services. We also provide news and updates on the environment, recycling, energy efficiency and related topics.

    We are listed in The Guardian and Channel 4’s environmental sections and on green.tv, a United Nations Environmental Programme, and we are members of Ethical Junction.

    Please let me know if this would be of interest.

    Kind regards,

    Dr Gary Robertshaw
    The Green Providers Directory
